Phatwheels fans, and people with a grudge against Jim are the ones doing the fucking. He's just the front man. For myself, a big piece of the puzzle missing in all this is why is he so motivated to help coordinate and cheer them on. I've heard word Jim is rather sharp in his business practices, but this seems personal.
I saw a purported IRC conversation between him and Steven Lynx recently. My first impression was the conversation never happened. Someone simply wanted to make Fred look like a complete lolcowing nutter. Rereading this along with Fred's twitter feed makes it seem plausible. Fred appeared to be fishing around for more allies, and Stephen Lynx was just being as casual as possible, while striving to slowly back away from the crazy.
At least Moot had the good sense to walk away and stay walked ever after. So did Josh, for that matter.
There's a certain chan user who thrives on all this nonsense. I'm not one of them. May be boring for some, but I'm much happier with the low key drama free style of Odilitime and Balrog.
